David Van Os on Single-Member Districts
Texas attorney on the history of the "gentlemen’s agreement"
DAILY News  February 28, 2008, by Wells Dunbar
"...In light of the controversy over single-member districts – and the City Council resolution that would make putting them to a vote a hell of a lot harder (which, with council still in closed-door executive session, hasn't unfolded at City Hall yet) – the following email from attorney and former Texas Attorney General candidate David Van Os is making the rounds. More like a small book really – Os explains his role fighting against Austin's current at-large system, and what he describes as the racist history of the so-called "gentlemen's agreement." Fascinating stuff: I was the lawyer who represented the NAACP and sometimes LULAC in long-running litigation to invalidate the Austin at-large system under the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act. We dissected the “gentlemen’s agreement” that reserved one seat on the City Council for African-Americans and one seat on the City Council for Hispanics. The “gentlemen’s agreement” is not just a myth or metaphor..."

Union's Due

News Story  April 6, 2001, by Kevin Fullerton
"...Labor attorney David Van Os is about the last man in Texas you would expect to be called a union-buster. For more than 20 years, he's been going to court to fight for the little guy he's a bare-knuckled champion of workers' rights in a 'right-to-work' state, where 'concerted activity' among employees is synonymous with treason..."

Will the Charges Stick?
The National Labor Relations Board issues a formal complaint against Van Os and Associates
News Story  April 6, 2001, by Kevin Fullerton
"...On March 29, the National Labor Relations Board, acting through its Acting General Counsel, issued a formal complaint against Van Os and Associates, based on the charges former employees filed against the firm at the NLRB's Phoenix office. The NLRB complaint provides much more detail than had been available from the earlier, summary statements of employee claims; it itemizes employee allegations that the Van Os firm engaged in actions designed to interfere with the employees' attempts to engage in "concerted activity" and potentially, to organize a union (protected activities under U.S..."

Beside the Point
Gentlemen's agreements, single-member districts, and more
News Column  March 7, 2008, by Wells Dunbar
"...As Austin was reminded through a widely disseminated e-mail from San Antonio attorney David Van Os – who once argued the lawsuit to end Austin's at-large council system – the gentlemen at the heart of the gentlemen's agreement, reserving the Place 2 and Place 6 council seats for Latino and African-American candidates, weren't card-carrying members of the Rainbow Coalition. Instead, Van Os bluntly describes how in the early 1970s, "the white business community" decided not to back Anglo candidates in either race: "The specific motivation was to let the 'Blacks and Mexicans' have one seat each in order for the city to be able to defend [against] the voting rights lawsuits that everybody knew were coming, and thus preserve the at-large system..."
